The Commodore 64 was the first computer for many families. This program looks at what you can do with the famous C-64. Demonstrations include The Wine Steward, Skate or Die, Strike Fleet, the Koala Pad, Master Composer, Tetris, and Berkeley Software's GEOS. Includes a visit to a Commodore Owners Users Group meeting and an interview with Max Toy, president of Commodore. Originally broadcast in 1988.

This first volume, plus the succeeding five now in preparation, covers the impact of aerodynamic development on the evolution of the airplane in America. As the six-volume series will ultimately demonstrate, just as the airplane is a defining technology of the twentieth century, aerodynamics has been the defining element of the airplane. Volumes two through six will proceed in roughly chronological order, covering such developments as the biplane, the advent of commercial airliners, flying... Topics: ALGORITHMS, RAIN, HURRICANES, GEOS 3 SATELLITE, TROPICAL REGIONS, WEATHER FORECASTING
A mathematical analysis of the tradeoffs and requirements was performed to develop an improved array design which will give stronger returns at lower elevation angles and reduce pulse spread in the return. It was determined that a zenith angle of 75deg can be obtained with an array with an area of 0.28 sq m, if the array is shaped on the surface of a 45 deg cone whose axis is coincident to the satellite axis. The total weight of the truncated pyramid array with 270 cube corners is calculated to... Topics: NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS), GEOS 3 SATELLITE, LASERS, REFLECTORS, MATHEMATICAL MODELS,...
